 To HST, or not to HST

About to buy the L3010, but thought the HST was just "fluff" and was leaning toward good ol' standard transmission. See a lot of HST enthusiasts on this board...so educate me... is it really worth the extra $$...why?

 To HST, or not to HST

Jan, what do you intend to do with that tractor? Is an automatic transmission in your car or pickup worth the extra cost? If all you're going to do is run long periods of time at constant speed; i.e., plowing or mowing big fields or open areas, I probably wouldn't want the HST. However, if you're going to do a lot of maneuvering, turning, changing speeds, changing direction - forward and backwards, then the HST is a real time and energy saver. And that's not to mention the added safety of having more precise control all the time, easier for new operators to learn and use, etc. As you might guess, I have HST on my tractor and wouldn't be without it, although I probably have more hours experience on bigger tractors with straight gears. There's a time and place for both.
